How to: LIve Happy

1. Kiss that cute boy at the party, but push him away as soon as he puts his hand up your skirt

2. Smoke a cigarette for the first time, and make it your last

3. Don’t straighten your hair for a week, see how many compliments you get

4. Blast your favorite song even when your mum has told you off for playing it too loudly. Enjoy those 3 minutes of pure happiness before she pulls the plug out.

5. Say yes to going out, you’ll have something to tell your grandchildren about

6. Paint a sun on a rainy day, then stick it to the window

7. Eat the cupcake, you have better things to worry about than those 300 calories

8. Do yoga and meditate as often as possible

9. Stand up for yourself. Someone called you a slut? Someone said you are ugly? Someone said your art work was boring and dull? That is your cue to fucking stand up for yourself and make them speechless

10. Don’t respond to a group of males whistling at you. You’re a human being, not a fucking dog

11. Leave your headphones at home, see how much you are missing out on because you’re always lost in your own thoughts

12. Carry hand sanitizer and bandaids in your purse

13. Wear sexy underwear, loads of leather, a fur coat, heels and purple lipstick. Do it for yourself, not for the hot guy next door.

14. If you’re having a bad day, cry, scream, punch a pillow, throw stuff around. Then you pick up the mess, including yourself and get back up.

15. Smile, be polite and get on peoples good sides for starters

16. Stop waiting for your crush, stop dressing up for the bar man that serves you a free drink or staying extra hours at work for your boss. Stop impressing these dickheads and start impressing yourself.

17. Laugh until you cry, and when the girl sitting next to you in class tells you to shut up, laugh even louder.

18. Do whatever feels right in the moment, laugh, cringe and regret it later. Repeat.

I Promise It’s Worth It

I wish people were still friendly like they used to be. It doesn’t take much effort to just smile at people when they walk by or exchange small talk. People are so caught up in their own lives to open their eyes and notice what’s going on around them. It can not only change your whole life to just be more aware and compassionate, but it can make someone’s day–and that is definitely worth it.
